The Multichain Token Platform Lite Paper v1 April 2018 Disclaimer The scope of this white paper is to describe the potential of Coinweb. The launch version of Coinweb is a feature-rich token platform on Litecoin. The intention is to add multiple underlying chains (where Bitcoin and Ethereum are the most likely candidates) and mentioned features, and possibly more functionalities not yet thought of, later. See the current roadmap on A protocol upgrade is a code change that requires community support to take effect. Moreover, a technically viable feature may not be considered worthwhile due to factors such as node operating costs and platform stability. This white paper is limited to the Coinweb protocol. Wallets that carry the Coinweb name are not described here. A full legal disclaimer is included at the end of this document Abstract The blockchain world is complicated. The first company to simplify it will be the one that accelerates mass adoption. Coinweb aims to make the blockchain easy for anyone to use and will lower entry barriers by making crypto wallet addresses as memorable as and URL addresses. Until now, anyone holding an amount of cryptocurrency needed to create a different wallet for each coin type they held. Not only that, but each wallet used a long and complex hash address. The Coinweb Metalayer puts an end to this: a technology that work across different blockchains including Litecoin, Bitcoin, and Ethereum. Thanks to the metalayer, crypto buyers will now be able to hold a number of different coins in a single userfriendly and easy-to-remember wallet address. Not just an address system In addition to simpler wallet addresses, Coinweb offers a whole host of other features: The ability to issue tokens and smart contracts first on Litecoin, and later on other blockchains A multifunctioning wallet: one you can navigate to and send messages from. You can even attached to tokens to your messages A decentralized exchange which allows trading between popular coins, such as BTC, ETH and LTC, and user-created tokens An incubator that helps blockchain startups create and issue their tokens on Coinweb To use all of these features, users need to hold an amount of Coinweb s native XCO token, which balances low fees with the needs of a smooth running network. Coinweb is developed by a private company with time-locked tokens and fee revenues. 3 Contents A user-friendly crypto address 4 Evolving Crypto Address Formats 4 Easing Frustration and Fighting Fraud 4 Unifying Standard 4 Multichain Tokens 4 Blockchain Blockchain 2.0 Ethereum 5 Entering Blockchain Coinweb s Point of Entry 5 The Coinweb Name Space 6 Issuance, Ownership and Transferability 6 of Coinweb Domains Coinweb s Naming System 6 Tokens 7 Roadmap for Coinweb 9 The Decentralized Exchange 9 The Coinweb Incubator 9 Further Name Space Growth 9 The Team 10 The Advisors 11 Legal Disclaimer 12 Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Statements 12 XCO The Native Currency 8 Symbol and Code 8 Utility 8 XCO Supply and Distribution 8 4 A user-friendly crypto address which lives on all big blockchains, not just one Evolving Crypto Address Formats Crypto wallets also called hash addresses are difficult to remember. A Bitcoin (BTC) address looks something like this: 1XPTgDRhN8RFnzniWCddobD9iKZatrvH4 Ethereum (ETH) addresses are no clearer: 0xb794f5ea0ba39494ce839613fffba It s easy to make a mistake even when copy and pasting addresses. Get a character wrong, or miss one off, and an entire transaction can be lost. Easing Frustration and Fighting Fraud While the main purpose of unique hash addresses is to ensure transaction safety, they don t prevent fraud. For example, if a company releases its official wallet address during a token generation event, a scammer can easily dupe others into paying into their wallet address undetected: because the addresses aren t distinct enough from each other. If crypto addresses were easier to remember and looked more like addresses, it would be much harder for scammers to target them. Why? Because each business or person would own their official name space such ensuring that coins were always sent to the right person: not an anonymous address. Unifying Standard Blockchains are generally incompatible with one another. While many projects try to unify blockchains by building tech that links them together, Coinweb s metalayer works on top of other blockchains allowing users to create and innovate on numerous blockchains. 5 Multichain Tokens Token standards such as ERC20 on Ethereum and Counterparty on Bitcoin are limited to a single blockchain. However, Coinweb tokens can be used across most blockchain infrastructures, giving users access to different characteristics and features. Coinweb builds a metalayer on top of existing blockchains enabling everyone to issue their own tokens, having their own blockchain domain name, using the features of different blockchains. Coinweb builds a metalayer on top of existing blockchains enabling everyone to issue their own tokens, having their own blockchain domain name, using the features of different blockchains. Blockchain 1.0 Bitcoin was the first blockchain to exist. From an evolution perspective, it defined Blockchain 1.0 and remains the dominant chain. Blockchain 2.0 Ethereum Ethereum was launched in 2015 and has quickly grown in popularity. Today it s the second largest cryptocurrency by market cap. With Ethereum, smart contracts and DAPPS. The presence of features like these have set the standard for other blockchains like: safety/privacy (Monero), tipping/fun (Dogecoin), and speed (Litecoin). As a result, we now have a very fragmented market, with thousands of coins. Entering Blockchain 3.0 There are huge numbers of coins and tokens in the Blockchain 2.0 environment, and many struggle with high fees and scalability issues. The next most important challenge for blockchain evolution is finding a way to unify chains and let users and developers use all of their features. Coinweb s Point of Entry Coinweb aims to enter Blockchain 3.0, opening blockchain environments to the mass market by reducing complexity and unifying different blockchains. Coinweb s proprietary technology fuses the basic foundation of the secure metalayer with the new features needed by the blockchain industry in 2018. 6 The Coinweb Name Space Issuance, Ownership and Transferability of Coinweb Domains Coinweb allows everyone to own a personal space in the blockchain world, providing an easy entry point for mass adoption like domains and the DNS system did for the internet. Several other projects offer a naming system for a single blockchain but none of these operate as a metalayer like Coinweb does. Our simple naming system works across several blockchains at the same time; using names that are human readable and easy to remember unlike the cumbersome hash addresses currently used. Coinweb allows everyone to own a personal space in the blockchain world, providing an easy entry point for mass adoption like domains and the DNS system did for the internet. Coinweb s Naming System Coinweb allows users to create a unique wallet name; a C-name which must be completely individual and meet established naming conventions. Here s a bit more info on how it works: C-domains Structurally similar to domain names, but without a TLD suffix (like.com or.net). Anyone can register an available c-domain, or choose to buy a pre-registered one that s available on a second hand market place. Example Alice registers the c-domain CRYPTOLAND C-name A blockchain alias or address that can be used for receiving coins and tokens. Looks like an address, but again -- no suffix. Example Because Alice owns the c-domain CRYPTOLAND, she has the right to register (or sell) a c-name; such as C-username The first part of a c-name Example alice is the c-username of 7 C-tokens These are Coinweb tokens that the owner of any c-domain or c-name can issue. Example 1 Alice issues 1000 CRYPTOLAND tokens Example 2 Alice issues 500 ALICE-IN-CRYPTOLAND tokens N.B. The latter also gives her the right to register the c-name C-mail An service built on Coinweb that allows users to easily send and receive cryptocurrency and c-tokens. Example Alice owns the c-domain CRYPTOLAND and the internet domain cryptoland.com. She sells c-mail addresses bundled with equivalent c-addresses. This allows her c-mail users to login to a webmail interface such as gmail or hotmail and send s along with cryptocurrencies and c-tokens. C-TLD A generic internet domain that Coinweb maintains: ending in.xco Example 1 As a c-domain owner, Alice automatically owns the web address http: /cryptoland.xco Example 2 As a c-name owner, Alice is automatically assigned the web address http: /alice.cryptoland.xco C-DNS A truly decentralized domain name system. Like Namecoin, it will require end users to adopt a custom plugin. Tokens Tokens are referred to as coins, assets, trading cards, coupons, shares, or anything depending on its specific use case. They work in the same way as cryptocurrencies and can be spent and escrowed across all chains. A user created token can have whatever supply the owner defines. They can be locked too. 8 XCO The Native Currency Symbol and Code Coinweb s native token is called XCO. CO are the first two letters of Coinweb and the X symbolizes the token s cross-chain properties. In addition, the X in XCO ensures compatibility with the ISO 4217 standard where gold is XAU and silver is XAG. Utility Coinweb usage fees must be paid in XCO such as when smart contracts are executed. In this instance, the fee protects against spam attacks and ensures the burden on nodes remains manageable. XCO is also the sole token that piggyback servers are paid in, and users will need XCO to register unique token and address names. XCO Supply and Distribution A maximum of 7,680,000,000 XCO can theoretically be issued. The maximum token supply at launch will be 2,400,000,000 XCO. 2 billion XCO can potentially be sold prior to launch of the platform Tokens will be issued, assigned to their respective buyers, and will be transferable at Coinweb s launch Any unsold tokens will never be issued Tokens are sold by the company and the proceeds go to further develop the protocol, provide infrastructure, support the network, and promote Coinweb An additional 0.4 billion XCO will be released to Counterparty token holders (XCP) as an airdrop 1.8 billion time-locked XCO will be rewarded to early contributors who helped Coinweb become a reality Only a tenth of the rewarded XCO are granted at launch. The remainder are held by a smart contract that pays out XCO every 17,280 blocks (~1 month) in equal chunks over the next five years 1.8 billion time-locked XCO are retained by the company Only a tenth of the retained XCO are issued at launch. The remainder are held by a smart contract that pays out XCO at every 17,280 blocks (~1 month) in equal chunks over the next five years 1.68 billion XCO are held by a smart contract that subsidizes miners Mineable XCO are paid to the miner of the underlying Litecoin block under certain conditions, and a maximum of 10% the remaining balance of mineable XCO are paid out annually. 9 Roadmap for Coinweb Coinweb will permit access to different blockchains via a metalayer; simplifying and lowering entry hurdles for users; also allowing them to develop more exciting features. Other tokens can be listed and issued on Coinweb, and new DApps can be created too. As it has all of these features Coinweb will become an incubator for new blockchain startups. The Name Space and the main Coinweb platform will be live end of May Coinweb is not a promise it is mostly build and ready to use in just a few weeks! The Name Space and the main Coinweb platform will be live end of May Coinweb is not a promise - it is mostly build and ready to use in just a few weeks! Every startup that joins the incubator will automatically profit from the simplified, human readable wallet addresses and from issuing their tokens within the name space. There are a number of other features coming over the next 12 months, including: The Decentralized Exchange The Decentralized Exchange (DEX) functions in a similar way to a traditional stock market, except the protocol takes care of order matching, updating balances, and escrow of funds. No middle man is needed no accounts need to be set up. The DEX will be ready for Litecoin in June Other tokens and coins will be added later. The Coinweb Incubator Coinweb is an open platform and anyone who wants to use it as a DApp platform will be able to do so without any support from Coinweb. In addition, through its Coinweb Incubator (CWI), Coinweb will be able to provide a number of services to selected businesses, supporting them through their pre-ico journey; nurturing them post ICO; and helping them stabilize and grow. The Coinweb Incubator will have on-boarded the first projects in October Further Name Space Growth The Name Space will be Coinweb s most important feature. Coinweb on Litecoin will be the first to include the Name Space in May Other blockchains will be added soon after. 10 The Team A team of highly experienced developers, based in Scandinavia, Latvia and the United Kingdom.
